I covered the sides of the mdf piece in tissue tape, gluing it into place to ensure it did not come off.
For the focal point of the piece I used one of my stash of vintage photos an encased her inside one of Tim Holtz cabinet cards, scuffing the edges to give it a worn feel.
I just love her ... the gentle look in her eyes ... I added some flowers made using tattered floral die with centres of rolled flowers..that sadly I bought as I have not mastered how to make these :( .
I added another at the top to balance the composition , complete with some smaller flowers
I left this piece of writing alongside the photo.. as I liked it ..
To complete the shabby feel I added some lace layers and some dyed seam binding all in my adored neutrals..
and a metal idea-ology embellishment , coloured lightly with antique linen paint.
A couple of mother of pearl buttons complete this shabby chic feel piece...
